Lady Gaga Tells Ellen Why She Can’t Let Go of ‘A Star Is Born’ Character


What am I calling you? Stefani, Lady Gaga,
Gaga, Lady, Miss Lady? Whatever you like. Whatever feels good. Well, what do you
like people call you? I actually really love
Lady because Tony Bennett calls me Lady. All right. I like Lady. Yeah. What if I call you– I don’t want to be
like everybody else. What if I call you Miss Lady? [AUDIENCE CHUCKLING] Done. Hey, Miss Lady. Hey, Miss Lady. Hey, Miss Lady. Lay-deh. Lay-deh. All right, so you
live in LA now too. Yes. Well, not in LA,
but around here. Because I was giving you
a hard time because you were staying in a hotel
room or something. All the time. Yeah. Or other people’s– and I
was like, you got some coin. You can get a house. So you got a house. Yeah. I saw pictures of your– did
you get a new little puppy? Did you get a new
French bulldog? I did, I did. Gustav. [AUDIENCE AWING] Oh, my god. Yeah, he’s a little angel. And they all get along? Yeah, they do. They all get along. Well, every once
in a while, there’s a little fight over the food. Oh, god. That little puppy is adorable. Thank you. Adorable. I don’t want to take full credit
for your career, but I do– [AUDIENCE CHUCKLING] I do believe I’m
partially responsible. When you were here– I don’t know when it was. Was it the last
time five years ago? Do you remember me telling
you you should act? I didn’t remember that. I did. I told you. Do we have the clip? Yeah. I’m obviously not good
at remembering things. That’s right. Good thing we’re on television,
I can show you the clip. You’ve got to go into
acting next, right? Thanks. Well, I– I’m not sure. When I talk about
acting, I’m always surprised that no one
ever asks me to audition. I told you you should
act, and was I right? I mean, she’s an amazing
actress, isn’t she? [AUDIENCE CHEERING] Thank you. You’re amazing. You’re so kind. No. Portia couldn’t go that night
when I went to the screening. And I came home and I was like,
not only is the movie great, your, obviously,
singing is great, but your acting is so
natural and effortless. And it almost looked
like there was no script. It looked like you were
just having a conversation, and there couldn’t
have been more– like no take was the same. That’s how it felt. You know, that is 100%
testament to Bradley as an incredible filmmaker,
an incredible director. An incredible singer, I’m
sure you can all agree. Yeah. [AUDIENCE CLAPPING] He has a great voice. Beautiful voice. And he just provided for such a
sanctuary on set, and it was– he says that to me in the
film, and he said it to me in real life. All you have to do is trust me. And I really felt like I could
trust him every day on set, and it was just–
it was thrilling. It was a totally different
experience than I’ve ever had. There are a lot of
people in this town that have the same career. Actors, actresses, whatever. And especially when the woman
is more successful than the man, if that is the case, it
is a tricky situation to have a relationship. It just is. Absolutely. And the film addresses that. And it addresses substance
abuse, and mental health, and codependency. It operates on many levels. And having a voice,
and what to do with it, and what you want
to say in the world. And I just want to say to
you, at the end of your shows when you talk about
being kind, that is just the most important thing
that anyone could say that has a voice in this world. And so thank you so
much for doing that. Thank you. [AUDIENCE CLAPPING] Yeah. I’m lucky I have a
platform to do that. You are. You are. And you use it. And you use it. Yeah. It’s the most important thing,
when we have a platform, is to do something where we know
we’re helping somebody else. That’s right. Now, when you finish the
character, shooting the movie, was that character
hard to let go of? Yes. And I literally dyed my
hair blonde the night that we stopped
shooting, because I wanted to get out of it as soon
as possible, because there is– without giving away
the end of the film, there is some tremendous
emotion and tragedy. So I wanted to get her
out, but to be honest, she’s still in here. She’s still there? Yeah. For sure. Yeah, but some of it is a good
thing that she’s there, right? I think passion, and
fighting to be who you are, I think these are two of
the most important things in the world. [AUDIENCE CLAPPING] Yeah. Yeah, it is. I’m so happy to see you again. We’re going to take a break. We’re going to play
a game after this, but first, the name of the CD. And the music is great. It’s called “A Star is Born.” Everybody in the audience is
going home with a copy of– [AUDIENCE CHEERING] We’ll be back.
